A new ‘supercategory’ is being introduced in the Lighting Design Awards for 2018.
The Global Project of the Year will be a supercategory, in which the shortlist is selected from all entries to all nine project categories.
It is designed to reward a scheme of outstanding creativity, high ambition and world-class execution.
In past it wasn’t always possible for the judging team to signal a project of true exceptionalism’ said Ray Molony, chairman of the judging panel. ‘The Global Project of the Year allows us to do just that in 2018.
‘Whoever wins this in its augural year will justifiably be able to claim a work of a world-beating standard.’
Finalists in the Global Project of the Year will be assessed and critiqued by the team of eminent judges.
The winners will be announced at the prestigious black-tie presentations ceremony at the flagship London Hilton on Park Lane on Thursday 3 May 2018 before a 800-strong audience of lighting designers and architects.
